I have a coming 4 year old appendix stallion that has not been bred. I have not been involved in the breeding process at all so I'm learning as I go. I would like to continue showing him so I was thinking about ground training vs. phantom training for collection. How do I find someone in my area (Louisville, KY) to do this and when should I send him for training?

Angela:

I show and stand my stallions and I took them to a stallion station to be trained to collect for AI. I have never let them have the real thing as this just makes handling them in the show arena more challenging.

Check with your local equine vets in the area. If there is a facility in your area, they will know.

My first stallion went to a warmblood facility about 45 minutes from my farm at the age of 3. They did not advertise doing any outside training, but they collected and shipped on their stallions and were happy to train my guys to collect, and they also did my shipping. All I had to do was do a drive by in the morning on my way to work, and pick that particular stallion up on my way home.

This spring one of my stallions is going to a real stallion station for the entire breeding season. I am trailering him about 5 hours away where he will be collected and I plan to store a couple hundred frozen straws before he leaves for Australia. The station will also ship all the fresh semen orders that are already booked this spring as well as anything else that comes in before he goes.

This is an excellent way to get him trained as hes new to the whole procedure and so are you.

You could also try googling stallion station, kentucky, or shipping stallion semen, etc into a search engine and see what comes up.

Good luck!

Hi

If you are talking about sending your stallion to be trained onto a dummy mare then speak to your vet who should be able to point you in the right direction.
However I would avoid ground collections unless your horse has hock damage or similar. This can be dangerous and also cause back problems.
JUmping a dummy mare is the best route to go down IMAO
